Abstract

Internet of Things involves the interconnection of physical devices to the internet. The fundamental motivation behind the conception of the Internet of things (IoT) framework lies in the control, regulation and automation of physical parameters which in tandem work against the programs written for its execution to solve a particular problem. This paper aims to automate such a mechanism, which can revolutionize the way in which we handle household plants. Soil moisture, temperature, humidity, sunlight and PH are important parameters for growth in plants. The data collected by the sensors based on the above parameters is used as the information to monitor and control plant growth. Thus the proposed system uses soil moisture sensor and temperature sensor which are interfaced with the NodeMCU microcontroller that will allow us to remotely monitor the plants for the temperature it can withstand and water it when needed. The data collected by the sensors based on the above parameters is used as the information to monitor and control plant growth. The system can be controlled by its user with the help of smart phone using IoT. This paper identifies the problem of humans not being able to render the changes in shade and provide convenience in satisfying timely water requirements and tends to automate it.
